As many of you know, Captain Dave was a Baystock fixture, for several years. He kept us from hunger by feeding us during many years.

Skoro, David Haynes “Captain Dave” Age 68, of Bayfield, WI, passed away Saturday, April 3, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN, due to a brief illness.

 

Skoro, David Haynes “Captain Dave” Age 68, of Bayfield, WI, passed away Saturday, April 3, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN, due to a brief illness. Captain Dave was an iconic figure in Bayfield and the surrounding area for decades. His influence, humor, personable nature, and expertise touched literally hundreds of people spreading far beyond the local confines of Bayfield.

Throughout his life Dave wore many caps of mastery from mechanical tinkering, photography, printmaking and knowledge of typography, to his outstanding skill as a sailor and teacher of sailing, working at various sailing businesses including Sailor’s World in Wayzata MN. He’d reached the official pinnacle of his seamanship acquiring the USCG 100-Ton Master’s License. The Lake Superior waters became his home. After retirement, Dave was honored as Captain Emeritus at Superior Charters, Bayfield WI, where he had worked as captain and teacher for the last 25 years.

Entrepreneurship was another skill set for Captain Dave, from a start-up printshop, an up-scale florist shop “Yantra,” a signage business, to several catering ventures which showcased his love of cooking. Captain Dave was also a licensed minister, marrying many couples in various settings including Puerto Rico!

Community was everything to Captain Dave. People who knew Dave remember him as helping whenever he could, never a bad word to others and giving his sage advice. Dave was a great storyteller and wanted the best for everyone. He assisted people throughout the area including helping a Native American teen to receive training toward his driver’s license. A proud moment for that teen, reflecting the gratitude many of us have had for having known the big-heartedness of Captain Dave.

David was born on July 20th 1952, attending St. Louis Park High School, graduating in the class of 1970. Dave is preceded in death by parents Donald & Allie Skoro, survived by brothers Steve (Jean, passing in 2016), Martin (Roselyn Rezac), Peter (Dede), and Robert (Molly) and nieces and nephews Robert (Ellen), Elizabeth, Stephanie, Thomas, Allie, John, and Chessa.

Memorials may be sent to: The Bayfield Area Food Pantry (corecr.org/…), P.O. Box 1530, Bayfield WI 54814. Sail on Captain Dave . . .

As usual, work weekend was very successful. The sound and light booth is completely rebuilt.  It came out great.  A big thanks to everyone that helped. Carpenter Jeff and Donny’s tractor were invaluable.   

We decided not to have stage lights or music after dark, so Mike and I made an 18 ft by 12 ft movie screen and hung it from the stage ceiling.  We showed movies every night.  We showed Blues Brothers, Woodstock, The Wall, and a Grateful Dead concert.  It was a good way to feel together, still social distance or stay in our own covid pod. 

During the day on Saturday and Sunday we had some live music from the stage.  We had Super D and the Double Chucks, American Ego, the Ringtones, Al Radley solo and Laughing Fox. 

Lana had shirts and bandanas, the food court was open.  We had no showers, no Wine and Cheese, and the group photo was one guy on the stage.  No group activities.  Despite this damn-demic, we all really had a great time.   

Hopefully next year things will be like the before times.  That’s what we’re aiming for.  So hang in there, stay safe, and be kind. 

Thanks everyone, see you next year,   AL
